Question
Duration of exercise to combat fatigue in men having androgen deprivation therapy:- Does a longer (more than 12 weeks) programme of supervised aerobic resistance exercise reduce fatigue more effectively than a 12-week programme in men having androgen deprivation therapy? Outcomes of interest are measures of fatigue, aerobic capacity, cardiovascular function and quality of life. [new 2014]
Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)
Why this is important:- A 12-week programme of supervised aerobic resistance exercise given for 12 weeks has been shown to improve quality of life and reduce side effects for men having androgen deprivation therapy for prostate cancer. It is not clear whether continuing the exercise programme beyond 12 weeks will result in further improvements.
